The Peter Jackson Diaries I: Designing The Dwarves by yourparodies The Peter Jackson Diaries I: Designing The Dwarves by yourparodies
Watch Peter Jackson battle trolls, critics, purists and all kinds of dangers on his way to turn the Hobbit into a movie!

I think it's fair to say that Sir Peter Jackson is one of the most beloved directors of all time. However, he is also one of the most criticized ones, at least online.

I have to say that I NEVER saw any other director, who was critisized for literally EVERYTHING he ever did, every single little decision he made, as much as Peter Jackson seems to be. (I guess that makes him the Anti-Nolan in that aspect...)
But I guess that's what you get, when you make films for one of the most unsatisfiable of fandoms, and of course, when you make something THIS BIG and THIS SUCCESSFULL, then you get trolls and know-it-all-critics comming out of the woodwork too, so that's another thing...

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to say that everyone who dares to dislike something is a troll or an idiot - but there were quite some "complaints" that I saw online that made me headdesk pretty hard...

NOTE: All complaints and critics potrayed in this series actually come from REAL comments I encountered online...
Yes, that means some people really said these things... But you know, what they say: You can only parody smart people - with stupid ones, it's enough to quote them... :D

The only thing that worries me is indecent shortness of Thorin's beard.  I bet some dwarf women have longer beards than him.
You know what? I agree with Agent Smith and Skynet. Humans need to nuked. We're worse than a virus! We're FUCKING IDIOTS!!!

Indeed. :no:

(Which is kind of funny, considering that Agent Smith happens to be played by Hugo 'Lord Elrond' Weaving himself... ;))
I love haters. They make me laugh. :rofl:

Oh, people can't just sit, watch and criticize without being childish. Although, those people just make PJ more popular.
haha i get it, The troll do the ...trolling
I liked the character design in the film as a whole. It makes sense to me that the dwarves would have individual characteristics. I was particularly pleased by the warg redesign, as they really have that demonic wolf idea about them now. The orcs/goblins were good too, as was Thranduil, though I didn't expect to see him riding a deer.
One thing that I found questionable was how Dale didn't have a Nordic feel to it. Perhaps they felt it would have been to similar to Rohan.

Anyway, your comic is very funny, and it really must be hard to cater for all the Tolkien fans out there, myself included, considering all the different ideas of how his world should look. Just goes to show the popularity of Tolkien's work, I suppose.

You were right. Poor guy, they are unpleasable...
